  1. Lenovo was apparently leaking like a sieve over the weekend and now details for two still-unannounced products are starting to emerge ahead of their official announcement. The first concerns a new ThinkPad laptop model that's slimmer and thinner than any of its predecessors and also happens to feature a non-removable with new Rapid Charge technology, which will result in charging times 2.5 times faster than previous ThinkPad batteries.

    That power is insane! This thing (if priced fairly low) will make a TON of people switch from Apple to Android... :D :D :D :D

    What power? It's got the same Tegra 2 chip and all the Android tablets released have.

    Except, it's a laptop from the Thinkpad line. Thinkpads are the "PC" version of an Apple MacBookPro (well, the other way around, Thinkpads came first), and by name alone carry a price premium over other "PC" laptops. The only difference is that the Thinkpad hardware is (generally) better and are built Mack Tough.? Oh, and they are historically flat black, opposed to the Apple standard of glossy white/brushed aluminum silver.

    Still, it is a considerable amount of power in a small chassis.

    edit: derp, I thought Anonymoussurfer was talking about the laptop, then noticed "Android." Well the Thinkpad name premium part still counts. =p

    The first Powerbook came out in 1991, the first Thinkpad came out in 1992. Also, the first Powerbooks were black, the TiBook (first Powerbook G4) was the first to have a brushed metal exterior.
